Grade 1, Physical Education Unit Title: Experimental Movement Page 5 of 12
Unit Description:
This unit is designed to allow students to develop and explore skills to move safely in a variety of environments. Learning experiences focus on concepts safety, exploring locomotor and non-locomotor skills, as well as movement patterns using various pathways, directions and speeds. The performance assessment provides students with the opportunity to create and perform a routine that demonstrate locomotor, non-locomotor movements, in a variety of pathways, directions, levels, and speed.
Considerations:
Most first grade students will have a general understanding of personal space, general space, locomotor skills, responsible use of equipment, and expectations for partner cooperation. However first graders will vary in developmental readiness, therefore this unit is designed to allow students to develop and/or experience manipulation of objects. In addition you may need to consider:
Time spent with students (i.e. length of class, number of days a week)
Technology
Space
Supporting Generalizations:
Awareness of body and space help demonstrate balance in movement.
Experimentation with various locomotor patterns, varied levels of effort and force, increase balance, coordination and movement capacities.
Performance Assessment: The capstone/summative assessment for this unit.
Claims: (Key generalization(s) to be mastered and demonstrated through the capstone assessment.)
Movement by traveling in various pathways, using directionality, speed, and levels provides measurable benefits to humans.
Stimulus Material: (Engaging scenario that includes role, audience, goal/outcome and explicitly connects the key generalization)
You and your small group (i.e. no more than 4) have been asked to perform during a community evening and present your creative routine, and will be available for questions relating to the benefits to all. Your movements, both locomotor and non- locomotor, must include various pathways, directions, levels and speed. You and your small group may include music and different types of equipment.
Product/Evidence: (Expected product from students)
Students will create and perform a routine with a small group. Students will demonstrate various pathways, directions, levels and speed.
Differentiation: (Multiple modes for student expression)
